Photography

We have had more than enough problems with visitors taking photographs. The pursuit of the perfect picture to post on social media reached an extreme, and so photography is now prohibited in the Ossuary. Thank you for your understanding and for respecting this rule.

How to Behave in the Ossuary

A bit of restraint never hurt anyone. Due to the sacred character of this Cemetery Church, food and beverages are prohibited in the Ossuary. Visitors under the influence of alcohol or drugs will not be allowed to enter into this historical monument. Smoking is strictly prohibited in the Ossuary and in the Cemetery. Please leave your pets at home. Bringing a dog to an ossuary is simply not the thing to do here. We ask that you do not touch anything, please. Thank you. The bones are the fragile remains of thousands of our ancestors. All of the bones are authentic. Please keep quiet during your visit – you are entering a tomb.

What to Do if You Come with a Large Bag, a Motorcycle Helmet, or a Pram

To protect the skulls and bones in the Lower Chapel, large bags and motorcycle helmets are prohibited. Please leave all large luggage items in the storage boxes in the Information Centre. Prams are permitted, but you will need to carry your pram into the Lower Chapel yourself.

Groups

We allow groups of up to 60 visitors. Due to the limited capacity of the Ossuary, groups of more than 60 must be split into smaller groups before entering. Please contact us in advance to book a large group visit.
